Dhaka, Mar 18 (UNB) – Students of Dhaka University on Monday demonstrated on the campus demanding reelection to Dhaka University Central Students’ Union (Ducsu).
Several hundred students, including activists and followers of the different panels who boycotted the Ducsu polls, brought out a procession from the base of Raju Sculpture around 12:30pm and paraded through the campus shouting slogans for reelection.
Later, they took position in front of the vice-chancellor’s office and have been observing a ‘sit-in’ till filling of this report around 2pm.
The March 11 Ducsu polls, the first in 28 years, were marred by allegations of irregularities. All panels, except that of Awami League’s student front Bangladesh Chhatra League, boycotted the elections alleging vote fraud.
Chhatra League’s panel dominated the polls but its VP candidate was defeated by quota reform movement leader Nurul Haq Nur.
